Thousands of people in the United States attended the funeral of Troy Davis, who was executed almost two weeks ago for the murder of a police officer in 1989.
Davis, 42, was put to death by lethal injection on 21 September at a prison in Georgia.
The execution was delayed by around four hours while the US Supreme Court decided whether to issue a stay. Davis went to his death saying he was innocent.
Seven of nine witnesses at his trial subseqently changed or recanted their testimony.
Amnesty International said the case received more attention than any in the United States in years.
Several speakers at the Jonesville Baptist Church in Savannah portrayed Davis as a symbol of what they called deep flaws in the US justice system.
The ABC reports The rousing service at Jonesville Baptist Church in Savannah reflected a determination by his family, civil rights leaders, supporters and activists to turn his execution last week into a renewed campaign against the death penalty.
